New full-length trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug: watch now

"Destroy the dragon, take back your homeland"

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug has released a new full-length trailer online, showing off the full epic scope of the latest episode of Bilbo's adventure.

The new trailer is stuffed with previously unseen footage, as master Baggins and the company of Dwarves press on in their attempts to rid the Dwarven homeland of its unwanted house-guest…

Speaking of Smaug, he certainly makes his presence felt here, hissing "I am the king under the mountain," before engulfing the camera in a wall of flame.

If the first film occasionally struggled to convey the magnitude of the task facing Bilbo and friends, this new trailer certainly strives to up the stakes, as the rest of Middle-earth finds itself sucked into the Dwarves' quest...

Directed by Peter Jackson and co-starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug will open in the UK on 13 December 2013.
